All churches in the diocese of York are part of the “Leading your Church into Growth” program. Some members of church have already been to a conference to learn how to lead our church into growth and have been sent back to the parish to role out the program locally.
PCC members are expected to participate as are all church members as much as they are able. It is a really exciting program.
The dates for the courses are as follows:
Wed 24th May (this session is mainly for church wardens, housegroup leaders and pcc members), Wed 7th June, Wed 14th June and Wed 21st June. These sessions will be held in the Parish Hall at 7.30pm.
If Wednesday evenings are difficult, Ali will also be running afternoon sessions on Thursday 25th May (this session is mainly for church wardens, housegroup leaders and pcc members), Thursday 8th June, Thursday 15th June, Thursday 22nd June at 1.30pm at 25 Melrose Park (instead of the usual Thursday afternoon housegroup)
